The Ningaloo Centre will come alive with activities, events and entertainment for the whole family. Take the opportunity to explore all the spaces in the building as we celebrate the official opening of the Ningaloo Centre and the exciting future it represents for our town.

Memory room: Leave memories, reconnect with friends and seek out familiar places in the WA Museum and Shire of Exmouth memory room. This is a place for people to meet, share stories, exchange information, catch up with old friends, feel welcome and return home to a community that has changed, but is still recognisably Exmouth.

Projection Art: This not to be missed event will see the Ningaloo Centre light up with story telling, animations and synchronised pyrotechnics.

Saturday 16 September  - 50 Year Birthday Party

Recreating history: Step back in time as we kick off the party by recreating the official opening of the Shire of Exmouth 50 years ago.

Float Parade: Witness a caravan in the true sense of its original meaning - a group of people, typically with trucks, wagons and maybe some animals, travelling in single file. Are you ready for a journey into history?

Party in the Park: A free family event, Federation Park will come alive with the smells and flavours of Exmouth, live entertainment and the screening of some 1967 favourite cartoons and a movie.

Military Ball: Ladies, take the arm of a dashing gentleman for all the glitter and glamour of the Military Ball. Dance the night away with a brass band and enjoy a sumptuous meal featuring all of Exmouth’s finest produce. This will be a ticketed event.

Sunday 17 September - Family Beach afternoon

There is no better place to spend an afternoon than at the beach. No matter when you lived here, the beach endures as the place to be for some fun in the sun, a swim or a paddle.
